Many of the movies / games / softwares DVD contains material more than its capacity. when we copy that material to HDD, its size is increased.

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking, but I'll try to answer you anyway! :thumbsup:

A standard DVD has a maximum capacity of 4.7GB. This is immutable. There is another type of DVD which can hold 8.54GB. These are called "Dual-Layer" DVD's. Most movies that come out on DVD are in fact dual-layer DVDs. Dual-Layer DVD's work in most modern DVD drives (though some older, cheaper drives may have trouble reading them.)

I hope that answers your question.
